Hello to regular readers and contributors to The Complete Booker. I'm stepping into Laura's shoes as the moderator for this blog.
She's going to be a hard act to follow and I know those of you who've been part of this community since its origins in 2007, will be sorry to see her step down. But we all have those moments in our lives when we have to make a change and give up on something we've enjoyed. And it seems for Laura, that's now though you'll still be able to follow her reading adventures on her LaurasMusings blog.
Since this is my first post as the moderator, it might be a good idea to tell you a little about myself. Some of you may know me from my BookerTalk blog site. But for the benefit of those who don't ... in 'real' life I'm Karen. I'm a native of Wales which for those of you who share my poor grasp of geography, is part of the UK.
I'm one of the newest members of the Complete Booker, having joined in 2012 when I decided one of my New Year's resolutions was to read all the Booker prize winners. I thought at the time it was a unique idea (how naive can one be??) but fortunately quickly discovered there were many other like-minded people who were already much further along that road. I still have a long way to go to catch up with most of you who follow this blog.
I'm hoping you'll all continue to share your thoughts on the prize winners, and the long listed and short listed titles to further enrich the library. I'd also like your thoughts on other features beyond the reviews that you'd like to see. All ideas will be welcome so please keep in touch.
That's all for now...
